12 days until surgery! I'm still very nervous but the RN at the hospital told me that once I get to the hospital the morning of surgery that they would start giving me something to calm me while i'm in the "holding area". For anyone that has had a hip replacement, when u woke up from surgery, was you in the worst pain that you've ever been in in ur life? (just wondering what to expect). I'm also wondering about the spinal block, if it numbs you from the waist down doesn't that give you a panic feeling when you wake up and can't feel your legs??? Did anyone else's bad hip cause your back to hurt? I hurt so much in my back that sometimes i'm afraid its my back and they are operating on my hip for nothing lol. I guess i'm just nervous and second guessing. I hurt in my hip, leg and groin too. I'm sorry I've rambled on!
